abstract

  • Among psychiatric patients, hyponatremia is often associated with factors other than psychogenic polydipsia, including medications and medical comorbidities. Although elderly psychiatric inpatients seem to develop hyponatremia more often than younger patients, once drugs and comorbidities are taken into account, age does not appear to be a significant risk factor for hyponatremia in this population.
